Research summary

My work focuses on investigating the effects of adolescent cannabis use on cognition, mental health and brain function. A key research question is whether starting to use cannabis from an earlier age leads to an increased risk of negative outcomes. To answer this question we utilise a variety of research methods, including human lab studies with acute administration of cannabinoids, longitudinal neuro-imaging, longitudinal cohorts, qualitative analyses, and online surveys.
